Has anyone ever hear of a 46 AN chambered in 6.5x55mm? I'm looking at one with 4-digit SN (10xx) preceded by the letters G F on the barrel. It has a 94 carbine receiver. That's all I know so far. Thanks, Dan:)

If you can believe the Husqvarna book, the only 6.5X55's were 46B, 3,900 made between 1942-43 in the serial range 70,001-73,947. Your gun might have been returned to Husqvarna to have a new barrel fitted at some latter time.

Thanks Ken, but wouldn't it need to be rechambered too?

Damn hard to say without seeing the gun but like I said t could have been a early gun that was factory rebarreled or maybe a special order. The HVA book says that all the early guns were in 9.3x57.

What is the serial on the bottom of the action? Does it match the barrel?

The "GF" markings on the barrel lead me to believe it is a replacement barrel. As Baribal notes, the AN barrels have the nickel-steel marking.
